New here. I have some wrangler springs if you are still looking. I am in Lafayette, Indiana. Have no idea on shipping. Would rather sell to you than to the local jeepers. How's $50.00 for all 4? +shipping of course.

Keep your shirts on kids!Sunday you will have your pics.

The spindles are just 44 front spindles turned down to match the ID of the bearing surface of the rear end.then we opened up the ID of the spindle to pass the shaft through.the ID of the spindle was 1.28 and we opened it to 1.39.the new shafts are 1.31.the spindle wall is a little thin but I'm not too worried.I probably wouldn't run this on a heavy rig but my scout weighs 3700lbs,so I feel ok about it.

Meho check your PM's!

That’s interesting, I remember looking at GM front spindles before to "convert" into rear D44 FF spindles. This was when I had a FF kit for some Jeep axle and was "reverse engineering" it. I didn't find enough meat in the flange to turn down to fit into a D44 housing.

Wonder if you have different spindles? Or if its a Waggy thing.


I would be interested in pictures as well, before, during and after... even though I have passed the D44 stage

Here are the pics you all wanted. I am a fly by the seat of my pants kind of fabricator so problems were addressed on the fly. It was fun. we'll see if it hold up. First set of pics are during the machining process.

Here is the finished product. We cut an O-ring groove into the back of the flange for a little more liquid proofing.

Here is the first problem i ran into. The spindle bolt pattern is smaller than the flange. Sort of. I had to make my own T bolts just to get it done.

Second pic is the second problem. To get the caliper bracket to sit where its supposed to, some of the holes ran into other holes. I used a 3/8's, 2 flute, self centering, end mill to drill the holes without walking out into the exsisting holes. I'm not super keen about the bolt heads sitting over the other openings. Im gonna machine some washers down or something to cover it.

finally the finished product. All bolted up and brackets on. I want to cover those holes, but other than that its ready for spring pads.

it came out about 1/2" wider than stock which I can live with.

Rear is loaded with 5.13's and a detroit, in case your wondering. Im gonna use that flimsy thin cover as a dog dish and get a thick cover with some protection added.

Dan,

What spring combo did you end up with?? Any luck at the JY's? I read somewhere else you got green in the shop, so I am wondering what you decided suspension wise?

So far I haven't got to test it yet.its still sitting on the bench.I'm not super impressed with only 1/8+of stickout into the axle housing,but with 5 3/8 grade 8 bolts,I don't think the spindle is gonna walk out on me.as far as durability I think full 30 spline shafts and drive flanges will be plenty tough for 4cyl and 35s.

Got my 52 inch springs today.I'm gonna run 48 inch chevs in the front.they just fit better on mock up.

Fabbed my shackle hangers today.also started on my spring pads too.

Pics to come.

Are you still using the bearing inside the spindle, or did you just get rid of it all together?

No.we had to bore the spindle to get the 30 spline shaft to fit.the hub will support the shaft so it won't hit the spindle.
